Gear Test: Cold-Weather Body Suits

Very few products marketed to hunters provide what is arguably the single most important factor that contributes to success--more time in the field. A selection of extreme-cold-weather "body suits," however, delivers on the promise of comfort, functionality, and warmth--everything a late-season hunter needs to endure extra hours on stand in brutal weather. We tested two of the best last winter while hunting whitetails on the coldest days of the season in northern Michigan and coyotes on frigid February nights.

As we hunted in driving snow and windy, sub-zero conditions, the inside temp of both suits never dipped below 72 degrees. But since the Heater Body Suit has to be unzipped to glass, call, or shoot (see below), all that precious heat escapes.Edge: IWOM XT
